#DOTW: Royal Regatta

I’m stuck in my hotel room in Boston, hiding from a torrential downpour. What would help the situation? A cocktail of course. I’m having coffee instead, but it would be nice to have a sip of this classy drink I made a couple of days ago. It’s delicious and different. The Belvoir that’s required for this concoction isn’t always easy to find, so plan ahead!


What you’ll need:

  • 1 oz Hendrick’s Gin (pr quality gin of your choice)
  • 3 oz Belvoir Elderflower & Rose Pressé
  • 1 apple juice
  • mint leaves

Muddle a couple of mint leaves in a highball glass, add ice and all other ingredients. Stir gently. Garnish with mint leaves and/or rose petals.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
